Welcome to my personal Walk for Kids page!
It's the Ronald McDonald House Charities Walk for Kids again..to help fundraise!
The Los Angeles Ronald McDonald House is a "home-away from home" for families with seriously ill children. While the children are nearby some of the world's best hospitals (many of them at Children's Hospital LA), their immediate family is close by at our house with 74 other families going through a similar experience.
I am fortunate to serve on the Board of the Los Angeles Ronald McDonalds House and feel inspired by the brave families that live at our house, the volunteers, the numerous doctors & staff that support the children and families through this stressful journey.
For more than 40 years, Ronald McDonald House Charities of Southern California has been dedicated to creating a community where children and their families embrace life and healing with a sense of hope, enthusiasm, courage and joy through the operation of Ronald McDonald Houses, Ronald McDonald Family Rooms, Camp Ronald McDonald for Good Times, a Community Grants Board and four Scholarship Programs. When you participate in the Walk for Kids, you are showing your support for families who are facing the fear and uncertainty of having a seriously ill child.
The Walk For Kids is for everybody. It is an easy 5k (3.1 miles) around Exposition Park. It is a fun, carnival-like atmosphere and thousands of families will show up to demonstrate their support for the House. Booths are set up with activities and refreshments. The Walk has music, entertainers, and Ronald McDonald himself has been known to show up. It's great!
